For the past three years, Kostas Papagiannis has been the Managing Director of MSD Bulgaria, Northern Macedonia and Kosovo. In this capacity, he has transformed the organization into one of the most dynamic pharmaceutical companies in the Balkans region, developing business processes and focusing on priority therapeutic areas in line with MSD’s regional and global strategy.
